How weird, I was playing the first game numerous hours ago. I think I played it too much today. I can't believe I completed it again in a day!
Anyway, thank you so much for doing your half of the art trade. Now it's my turn. I'm guessing you based Spyro's pose on this picture: images.wikia.com/spyro/images/…
This brings me so many memories but there's nothing like a trip down memory lane, collecting gems, flying through speedways/flight levels and kicking Gnorc butt like nobody's business. I'd say my personal favourite levels are Stone Hill, Dark Hallow, Toasty (due to the badass music and the bass in the drums and guitar. I can't stop head banging in rhythm to the music), Night Flight, Crystal Flight and Lofty Castle.
Anyway, you did a fantastic job at drawing Spyro and Delbin for the first time! I'm betting they're hanging around near the waterfall and the pond as well as the portal to Sunny Flight. When I drew Spyro for the first time, it wasn't easy. It took a lot of sketching and rubbing out to get his proportion right. At first, I wanted to draw his scales but that's gonna take ages so I decided to do the smart thing which is to colour his body purple. Bottom line, drawing dragons are incredibly difficult.
*sigh* I still miss Tom Kenny voicing these days. You know, if I weren't still on writer's block, I would have been able to write a fan letter to Tom Kenny by now. I just don't know what to write to him yet.
Here are my attempts at drawing - fav.me/d2igbbi (Spyro & Jake Long: Ripto's Revenge Final Version Poster), fav.me/d2hqwme (Spyro & Jake Long: Ripto's Revenge Preview Version Poster) and fav.me/d5mt5n2 (Pastel Drawing of Spyro the Dragon).
This really takes me back in time to an era where I don't need to give a damn about the constant crap the 21st Century keep churning out. No The Legend of Spyro trilogy, no Skylanders, no Adventure Time, no Regular Show, no mediocre Cartoon Network cartoons... it's all good! Thank you so much for the memories! Man, what would I give to travel back to the good ol' 90's...?
